Puget Sound Stream Benthos

Hoh Tribe Monitoring Project, Hoh Indian Tribe

The Hoh Indian Tribe monitors water quality in rivers and creeks within the Hoh Tribe's usual & accustomed places. The tribe's water quality monitoring program has four main objectives: 1) document the current state of water quality at selected sites to establish baselines; 2) determine whether monitored streams comply with Washington State water quality standards; 3) identify creeks and rivers in need of restoration or protection; and 4) record changes in water quality over time. Water quality data, including benthic macroinvertebrate data, are collected following an EPA-approved Quality Assurance Project Plan and a Clean Water Act Section 106 monitoring strategy (Hoh River Watershed Monitoring Strategy).
